1950s US army rations

At the end of our expedition we were stranded for a few days due to bad weather along the east coast of Greenland (though at our location the weather was really beautiful). Whilst we waited, Chris Blakeley made a fascinating find. It was an old US army ration pack stored in the shelter of some rocks.  The little green tins had best before dates of 1955.  Of course, curiosity took over and we opened one up.  Take a look at the short film below to see what we found inside.

National Geographic have also covered this story on their food blog, Plate.
